When I wrote my last posts which included Mapping a Dot.Tk and other domain names on Blogger by Google , Owning a Free Top Level Domain Name With Free Hosting, Starting a Website for Free and A list of Free Domain Name providers to try out. I received many emails requesting me to share how to map a domain name in particular the free Dot.Tk one to 000webhost.
Since both of the above are offered 100% for free, of course I knew many wanted to make use of such offers, and a reason why I choose to write this post on how to map/setup/point a dot.tk and any other domain to 000webhost so that any one out there looking for the same can learn how stuff works and below we go.
